Running, Running, Running!

I'm so happy because I have been running again! There were 3 things that I needed to change at the end of winter and beginning running again was one of them. It feels good to be getting out there again, especially when the weather is warmer! I'm a couple of weeks in now and it feels great!
This week with it being my spring break, I decided to venture out there with Colin and the jogging stroller. Day 1 was not good....1/2 mile into the run the front wheel fell off! I did not see that one coming (and neither did Colin!). Fortunately, it was an easy fix (I did not realize there was a lever that loosened and tightened for ease in getting the wheel on and off) and after a few minutes, Colin and I were on our way again.
We ran about 2 miles and then Colin helped me stretch! He was so happy to be on the ground with me and was causing quite a stir with all of the people walking by! What a social lil' guy he is!


Day 2 was so much better! I put air in the tires (who would have thought a lil' air would make the run that much better?) and was able to do a little over 2 miles without walking! Colin was so relaxed he fell asleep! I can't wait to see what's in store for us and our running adventures!

So funny! The only time Piper gets to run is if we're late for an appointment (or anxiously awaiting the warm indoors of the mall). She usually puts her arms in the air like she's on a rollercoaster. I'm sure she'd LOVE if I picked up jogging. Me on the other hand? I wouldn't enjoy it so much. I have a lot of respect for people who do! :)

What a fun thing for you two to be able to go out and do! I sure would love a jogging stroller... one of these days!

Oh man! I'm feeling responsible for the tire problem! Maybe that was the issue I kept having with it too! Sorry about that guys! Glad you and Colin had fun though!

What sweet pictures!
YAY Kelli for getting out there and doing something you are good at and enjoy! With the weather warming up I am seriously thinking about checking the tire pressure/air in my jogger stroller and hitting the pavement too.

Happy Easter to you all.

I wish I could be a runner, but I have decided its just not for me...At this point, I'd be thrilled to get a walk in!
